Justin Bieber has officially gone where few celebs have gone before, although many a celeb has threatened it—he done went and deleted his Instagram. That's right, everyone's go-to source for Bieber haircut updates and Bieber post-fight apologies has been scrapped, and as people of the Internet, you are all responsible. You failed to heed to his warnings.
Even though Earth exists in a post-Hillary "Delete Your Account" reality, Biebs didn't deactivate because someone told him to. He deactivated because commenters refused to be respectful. Even the whiney weenies have feelings.
Bieber was posting pictures of his (rumored) new girlfriend, Sofia Richie (the 17-year-old daughter of Lionel), and Beliebers didn't Beliebe in their relationship, so they threw hate at her in the comments.
The hashtag #RIPBeliebers started to trend after anti-Sofia comments forced Bieber to issue a stern warning: "I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate." He even added, "This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like."
This also comes on the heels of Biebs' ex, Selena Gomez, publicly throwing the shadiest of shade his way for making such threats to the fans who love him.
Bieber stuck to his guns and his Instagram account is no more.
As many Beliebers mourn the loss of this great resource, Twitter is responding accordingly. With a party. #JustinBieberDeactivatedParty is trending worldwide.
Like any good party, the memes and GIFs have arrived.
And Kylie Jenner has found a way to make it about herself.
